Vaginal Birth After Cesarean!

Mentally preparing for a natural childbirth...Letting go of all the fears and anxiety...This picture says it all!
Alicia had only known birth by c-section until the unforgettable day of December 11th, 2009. After laboring for 31 hours, she gave birth to a beautiful little girl!

Imagine the strength and satisfaction of giving birth vaginally without any medications. For some, this is nothing extraordinary...But for someone who has been told she must continue to give birth by cesarean section, this is extraordinarily empowering!
Alicia...You were so strong and did such a great job of listening to your body!
Welcome to your family Ella Marie!
